During the last few decades antibiotics have played an extremely important role in the management of otitis media (OM). Nowadays there are only sporadic reports of its sequelae and complications in the developed countries. Nevertheless, complications of OM still arise and the potential seriousness of this problem emphasizes the need for a high degree of monitoring. We report herewith a case of acute mastoiditis in an 18-month-old infant with chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM). Repeated cultures from the middle ear and mastoid cavity yielded Salmonella type C. The treatment modality and the pathophysiologic aspects are discussed.
